After picking up fruit at Chi Ut Trai Cay - Rosemead, we stopped off at MoMo Bakery - Alhambra to get some mini cakes for my dad's friend's daughter to bring back to Portland. We already had other mini cakes from Vanille de Patisserie - San Marino when we had afternoon tea the day she came into town, but MoMo Bakery had some cute ones too that were less expensive.
MoMo Bakery is in the space that used to be Kiki Bakery - Alhambra. as I said before, there seems to be some head-to-head competition since Kiki Bakery moved out of this spot only to re-open a few blocks east. The ownership changed, but the employees here are still the same as before. Which also means my favorite pastries and breads were still the same, such as the taro mochi buns and panda cookies!
Yummy taro mochi buns.
Taro toast has swirls of taro inside the loaf.
Mini and regular cakes.
A tray of Chinese egg tarts just out of the oven.
A customer came in asking for extra-thick cut toast to make Chinese butter toast. Hmm. I'll have to remember that next time. Or if I want to attempt Taiwanese coffin bread.
The selection is pretty much the same as when MoMo Bakery was Kiki Bakery, so you can read my previous post for other pictures.
Afterward, we stopped off at Fosselman's Ice Cream Co. - Alhambra before I dropped her off at the airport. And so ends the weekend eating extravaganza when my dad's friend's daughter was in town.
